I had one last year and it was dripping chocolate, probably from the same issue you had. nice work.
Love a practical fix!
You’ll find very little of this when sharing projects on here. It’s really a great community in that regard. I personally love seeing practical applications for the GF!
I wish i still had it. I threw it away. last year when it leaked all over, arggg
Thank You any way.
Nicely done. I’m finding “practical” uses like this for my gf and 3D printer all the time. One suggestion: acrylic is very brittle and will probably break eventually. You might try acetal or delrin. it is much more robust for applications like this.
No…no! Don’t slide back into non-posting! I love this. I’ve done a few oddball repairs on this level myself, so I appreciate this a lot. You must have had a feeling of immense satisfaction when you got that fixed.
That’s too bad. There are definitely some rules that community members help enforce… “slamming” is generally frowned upon, but I guess it does happen. Sorry you got a bad vibe.
Glad you decided to share.
You have a waterjet?? #mikedrop
I love this post. Nothing so satisfying as machining your own gear replacement - and it working.
Practical projects are my favorite! I’m glad you were able to fix the fountain.
Props for that also Maneuvering that much weight precisely is tough enough without doing it underwater, but the frustration of having a very nice gadget of whatever sort but for one badly designed bit is probably a far more common occurrence for the rest of us whatever the monsters we confront in our careers.
A bit off topic, but do you have an example link? Curious what qualifies as a slam to you, I think it’s generally pretty civilized here.
If you don’t want to get into it that’s fine, just mildly curious.
Nice work on the piece it’s always awesome when you can repair something you own. Most of the stuff I’ve made is similarly practical in nature.
Just don’t post a support question. I will say I share your feelings about people slamming others constantly in parts of this forum. However, I’ve never seen “Made on a Glowforge” posts slammed. They just have hundreds of positive responses generally led by the amazing @Jules.
